    The completely off topic thread

    Smokey BBQ chicken skewer thingies with veg. After two 40+ days at home trying to avoid it, I'm back at work and it's been an absolute rubbish day... Extra 17min in the car just to get here because traffic sucked sweaty balls, tried to use the tig but hot and the reg I bought leaks gas... Been trying to fix, that and ran out of plumbers tape which woolies doesn't sell anymore.. Currently making a big ass fk you Mr gas leaks hose clamp to seal the feed hose properly as every other clamp I've got has stripped out trying to lock the small diameter hose. So yeah... Great day... Positive news from yesterday, found out the bun in the oven is a girl

    MENTAL XD - The build.

    I got the bonnet skin and frame painted weeks ago but had poor results so rubbed them back and done them again. Much better this shot. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Over Priced junk

    i offerd an old lady fivehundred bux for a ef fairmont yesterday and she turned her nose up at it,its unreg,no battery,and been sitting for 12 months in her car port,she is one of my passengers on my bus,i thought that was a fair price,she likes it sitting there as she feels more secure that people think someone is home,also around the corner is a xc fairmont coupe done up like a cobra,been sitting in the front yard for at least 10 years and is still in good cond ,everybody has tried to buy it and the owner just loves frothing at the mouth everytime someone thinks they found a barnfind,offers have been made around 20k but it still sits there ,i will take a picture and load next few days.

    Well, a man can do more than dream it seems, I got most of the list done! Throttle cable Shifter bushing Coolant flush Engine oil & filter Interior tidy Engine bay tidy Wash it The whole thing is decent, all lights etc work, and I'm taking it for rego tomorrow. The carby was leaking again but fixed it by replacing gaskets in the primary bowl, then swapping out to another bowl with nitrophyl float and new seat. Its still jetted pig rich and as a result needs the idle mixture backed way off, but other than that she's pretty decent. No pics as yet, but here is a video of her running, as promised: Again, nothing special, but she does run okay apart from a minor exhaust leak at the collector (soon to be patched) and needing a slightly larger pump nozzle.

    Progress for today. Tomorrow I can start getting the front back together. Still a lot of parts to clean but I have the major parts cleaned or painted ready to go.

    i approve of this providing it's not covered in spider webs and crud with flat tyres. i'll take a pic of an EF/EL thing i see ever now and then on My ride(it's always there.) the way it looks, the owner could have died in the flat 4 yrs ago?

    The completely off topic thread

    They did it this way to make it easier to bundle the snakes together for proper exhaust scavenging on the cross-plane firing order. If you look at the lengths they had to go to on the GT40 with the Windsor and FE engines, you can see why. Also on an open wheeler, the carbies sticking out each side could gulp fresh air and not be affected by exhaust heat. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Bonnet hinge threads

    all sorted guys. tapped the thread out to 3/8th UNC. but also had to drill the elongated hole in the hinge slightly larger to take the larger bolt. Ive only done the one so far, so yes it looks out of place, however i bought 4 3/8th bolts so i can do all the others if i want to in the future.

    I've been slack with updates mostly because I'm absolutely exhausted these days. I hate summer and it hates me, makes chronic fatigue act up and functioning is difficult. I've been working on the details left on the kombi as well as the torana. For now I'm going to fast forward the bus to today when this happened It moved! The ballet happened again to spin the Brougham and the bus around each other so the kombi is a straight shot out the door on MONDAY. Or so I'm told. I'm finished apart from the sliding door and finding all the associated crap to go with it.

    Project: Re-assembly!

    3M drip check been around since Jesus was a little boy. Mainly used to seal seams on older style cars looks like factory if you know how to apply it properly. Dont worry about the warnings used heaps of the stuff still alive probably just some dead brain cells Some would say more then a few but thats ok. Something will kill you eventually anyways

    Wow...totally agree Matt. Gerg has been a epic help as has Dean and others. Generally most forget we all started out with stock/mild xflows and that opinion isn't valid but it comes back to the basics and xflows love timing.

    Yeah Im starting to realise it now. Still it might sound cheap but I do have to put a huge amount of work into it. Although the car was drivable it was nothing more then that. Have said to the wife how lucky the previous owners were that the brakes didnt fail or the engine blow a radiator hose and over heat. Fuel hoses were close to spraying petrol everywhere also. It was so close to major issues happening on a number of fronts so I made the right decision to give it a good going over.
